Love at Last Sight
StoriesBook - 2013
"So I have always walked alleys alone, with my monster face, listening through a wall for the words that might cultivate me, that are contained within the homes of ex-lovers, the ones who caught a glimpse and ran away."
In the neon-slick streets of Thea Bowering's imagination, monster girls and femme fl#65533;neurs roam, anthropologist's eyes on barroom denizens, disguising themselves in men's clothing and embarking on doomed love affairs. Old World meets New World as the caf#65533;s and piazzas of Europe's capitals intermingle with the dust and desolation of the 21st Century modern West.
Strikingly modern while also filled with fin de si#65533;cle regret, Thea Bowering's first story collection is shot through with allusion and timeless themes given new life.
